THE FINCA – GETTING THERE!

17th September 2010

We returned from all our revelling to find our project at the finca had a first floor and part of the roof and everyone talking to each other. RESULT!

Arrival of energy and water purification components

Items for the water heating and energy system have been delivered

– Two biomass boilers (fed by olive pips and almond shells)
– Batteries
– Bio diesel back up generator
– Water purification plant

 

The solar panels are yet to come.

 

Sliding the energy equipment into the "Energy Control Room"

Chris levelled the floor of the Energy Control Room and has painted the walls with a plasticised paint to ensure a dust free environment for the equipment

Preparation for the second part of main the roof

We have an "inside" to the house!

We would like to say that the team are working harmoniously now – but that would be tempting fate!

Looking from our bedroom to the hall

Up on the roof!
